              BY FAR the best company for crawl space repair!! We called several and were put off by all the up-selling. Rainy Day was straight forward and provided us just what we needed, a new vapor barrier and one support post repair. They offered a fair price and provided AMAZING service. I would use Rainy Day again or refer them to any friend.

    Customer Testimonial

              If I could give Rainy Day 10 stars, I would. From the very beginning they were so communicative and professional. We did the demolition ourselves before they came in to install our drainage system and I was able to ask them questions along the way for advice we needed. After the work was done we had a problem arise and Kevin (project manager) went above and beyond to help us solve it. Unfortunately, it's something really out of their hands now. I am so happy with Rainy Day Basement [Systems]. I'm now holding every other company we work with to their standards. Unfortunately, companies like this are hard to find. This was our first major project since buying our house and we feel very grateful and lucky that we found Rainy Day!!!!!

    Thomson and Helen B. of Mount Vernon, WA

    Customer Testimonial

              Very much enjoyed talking things over with Ed. He picked out a good area for the drain field. The installation crew was generally good. Xavier and Peter are hard workers. I'm not sure, but the water guard was not something we asked for. Xavier speaks very quickly--I think he was talking about installing something along the floor and I was saying "No we want the exit pipes to be higher up around 2-3 feet off the floor." I couldn't quite understand him. Also, at the end when we were going over the finished job-which looks very good by the way-Xavier got a little confused as to the names of the pipes (primary, secondary) and their alphanumeric designations (M53, M98). I had to go over that several times until we all got it right. Peter helped out also. The cleanup was good. (But, clean off the concrete residue off the TripleSafe better). I chose Rainy Day because your "Basement Science" matched exactly what I imagined what I thought or imagined a good system would look like. Under Google Images, I searched for a "Dual Sump Pump Design", eventually saw an example of your TripleSafe system, and to my delight realized you were located close by. I appreciated your "Dry Basement Science" booklet. It is so eminently logical, so I had faith in your products. Your devotion to excellence was demonstrated by Ed's presentation, and by the work done by Xavier and Peter.

    Crawl Space Encapsulation and Drainage in Arlington, WA

    When they purchased their home in Arlington, this homeowner knew the crawl space needed a complete overhaul. It had an old vapor barrier with moisture on top, rodents, and bad insulation. To create a healthy and protected space under the home, we sent Jean-Paul Holcomb to design a proposal. He developed a system to address the moisture, mold, and rodents. Our long-term solution comes with a guarantee and will help save energy in the process. Check out the full photo gallery for this project here.

    This Arlington, Washington crawl space had a problem with old insulation groundwater, and musty odors. Rainy Day came and did a full clean-out, then we covered the crawl space in our CleanSpace Encapsulation System.
